Intelligent Charging

Kinetik Intelligent 120 VAC to 12 VDC Power Converters are state-of-the-art electronic converters / battery chargers. Their compact size and quiet operation gives greater flexibility in selecting the mounting locaiton for either OEM installation or after market replacement.

The Kinetik Intelligent Power Converters have a computer controlled charging module built in. This is a microprocessor-controlled device which constantly monitors the battery, and then automatically adjusts the converter output voltage based on its charge status. There are four (4) operating Modes (Normal, Boost, Storage and Desulfation/Equalize). Each mode is automatically selected by the microprocessor and ensures a fast yet safe recharge for the connected battery.

General Features

Type of Inverter
This is the way in which the power inverter will convert the power.

AC to DC: Converts common household AC power to DC Power.

DC to AC: Converts DC power to the common household AC power. Often times these converters can be plugged into the vehicles cigarette lighter.

AC to DC
Sine Wave
A true sine wave inverter will convert the power produced by your vehicle in a true sine wave. This allows for a cleaner power output with less distortion and will allow larger items like appliances to run cooler and quieter. A modified since wave inverter will not convert the power from your car and are typically only suited for smaller items such as fans or lights. If you're planning on hooking up items such as laptops/computers, game consoles or appliances, you want to use a true sine wave inverter.
Fan Cooled
A great feature to have if a power inverter generates a large amount of heat. Cooling fans can help regulate the temperature to prevent the inverter from overheating (burning).
Low Battery Shutdown
When the voltage in the vehicle drops below a certain point, the inverter will automatically shut itself off so prevent the vehicle battery from dying.
